The Inspiration

NBA player and Oakland native Leon Powe has a vision, bring the community of Oakland together to help Oakland achieve its true potential.
Growing up in Oakland, Leon faced many obstacles that continue to challenge Oakland youth today. With perseverance and guidance from his mentor, Bernard Ward, Leon overcame those obstacles and has spent the past three years playing for the NBA’s Boston Celtics. Leon helped the Celtics earn a world championship in the 2007-2008 season.

The City of Oakland parallels Leon’s story, as it must overcome many obstacles while striving for greatness. Fresh Start for Oakland is an opportunity for the community to come together to experience local vendor’s goods & services, have conversations with local community leaders and work together to achieve a Fresh Start for Oakland.

There will be some FREE Scholarships distributed to those youth that are not able to pay. The scholarships will be awarded via our Twitter or Blog, so if you haven’t already, you should join us on:

Wycliffe Gordon Quartet

Trombone Summit; Wycliffe Gordon “Caravan”

Wycliffe Gordon is one of the top trombonists in jazz today. His improvisations are melodic and exciting, his tone is sweet and expressive, and everything he plays swings like crazy. He has performed all over the world, received countless awards from fans and critics, and collaborated with far too many great jazz artists to list. In addition to his prominence as a performer, Gordon is a composer, arranger, educator, and author. He has composed music for a variety of world-class ensembles as well as for film and television productions. His outstanding work as an educator includes international clinics and master classes for students of all ages, as well as extensive teaching at Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Stanford Jazz Workshop. As a musical diplomat for the U.S. State Department, Gordon promotes a positive vision of worldwide harmony (not to mention melody and rhythm). The creative originality and irrepressible joy of Gordon’s music are well-served by a top-notch Bay Area rhythm section featuring Matt Clark on piano, John Shifflett on bass, and Jason Lewis on drums.

“Mr. Gordon has rightfully earned a reputation as one of the premier trombonists of our time. A superior technician with a gift for buoyant swing, Mr. Gordon, above, is a feel-good player, made of much the same stuff as the trumpeter Clark Terry.”

– New York Times

We a pair of FREE TICKETS to see Regina Carter Quintet- Sat, July 11, for the 8:00 pm show at the Dinkelspiel Auditorium
Regina Carter Quintet

Jeff Sanford, clarinet/flute; Regina Carter, violin; Fred Harris, piano; Seward McCain, bass; Akira Tana, drums


Lewis Nash Quintet with Regina Carter, “Tico Tico”

While some may consider the violin to be a slightly unconventional jazz instrument, such restrictive conventions have never hindered Regina Carter’s creativity. Growing up in Detroit, Carter played in orchestral string sections, but longed to find a more individual mode of expression. Hearing jazz violin legend Stephane Grappelli opened her ears to a different approach and started a lifelong love affair with jazz and improvisation. Since she began releasing recordings as a leader in the mid-1990s, Carter has continued to make bold choices and blaze her own musical trail. Her diverse projects include a celebration of the musical heritage of Detroit, from Thad Jones to Marvin Gaye; a disc of duets with the great pianist Kenny Barron; a loving tribute to her late mother’s favorite songs of the swing era; and a live album documenting her triumphant performance in Genoa, Italy on the famous “Il Cannone” violin once owned by Niccolò Paganini—the first time a jazz musician was invited to play the legendary instrument. A relentlessly creative artist with extraordinary versatility, Carter has performed with leading musicians in many genres, from Wynton Marsalis to Mary J. Blige.

“Regina Carter creates music that is wonderfully listenable, probingly intelligent and, at times, breathtakingly daring… taking the listener into the future of jazz.”

  1. Вообще да, мне это напоминает ситуацию с выборами призидента Украины. Выборы прошли, а не факт, кто призедентом будет. Да, блин, демократия. Хех, простите за флуд небольшой, навеяло просто.

  2. I discover a link to your blog on yahoo, and I must say;) Your blog is much better than most all the ones I’ve visited on the web! Good stuff! Keep up the good work.
